Providence, RI (September 12, 2012) - Pannone Lopes Devereaux & West LLC (PLDW) Partner Brian J. Lamoureux offers the third installment of his monthly radio segment “Risky Business: The Law of Social Media” on Friday, September 21 at 4:30 p.m.

Airing on 790AM WPRV’s Positive Business, Attorney Lamoureux discusses how businesses should handle social media and its use by employees, the legal ramifications of social media use in the workplace, and provides a snapshot of court decisions affecting this emerging area of law. The September 21 segment will discuss how businesses can engage customers through Twitter, the dangers of "re-tweeting" and what to do if something "goes wrong" on your social media page.

"For a lot of companies, the biggest fear in social media is that a disgruntled customer will start posting negative things about your company," Attorney Lamoureux said. "It is a legitimate concern, and we'll talk about what a business owner can and should do if that occurs."

Attorney Lamoureux and show host Patricia Raskin will take calls and questions from listeners at (401) 437-5000 or (888) 345-0790 during the half-hour segment which will also broadcast live online at www.790business.com
